About this event

About the Walk

Enjoy a gentle stroll around Cally Park with Bob Gilbert from The Garden Classroom. This walk will look at some of the trees of Caledonian Park. It will look at how to recognise them, how they got their names and how they came to be here. Most of all, however, it will reveal their secret stories; the connection between the lime and love, the magical powers of the ash, why the poplar is always trembling, and how conkers won the First World War.’

About Caledonian Park

The history of Caledonian (Cally) Park and the local area extends beyond the iconic clock tower itself. The park and local area hide many clues to the history of the cattle market and the subsequent "Cally" market. We are Islington's second largest park and an important hub for nature in the borough.

About The Garden Classroom (TGC)

TGC provide urban children and adults with transformative outdoor experiences devised to encourage active lifestyles, promote self-discovery, inspire growth and stimulate respect for nature
